After shooting his wife and her lover, Ted Crawford admits his guilt to the police. However, he changes his mind and decides to plead not guilty when the crime is taken to court. Crawford must defend himself against an ambitious young lawyer named Willy Beachum. Although Beachum has a job offer at a respected company, he finds himself unable to turn down this last case. Although confident in the ease of the case, Beachum soon discovers that missing evidence and gross misconduct in the investigation might prevent him from putting Crawford behind bars.
